As one of Singapore's anchor music festivals, St. Jerome's Laneway Festival has constantly delivered note-worthy musicians to our shores since its inception in 2011. From Grammy winners (St. Vincent and Flume) to critics' faves (Bat for Lashes and Grimes) from all over the world, it's safe to say that music addicts weren't disappointed by the festival's expansive genres for its artists' line-up. Heck, we even had the soulful James Blake as a city-exclusive artist.

2018 marks the 8th Laneway in Singapore and its team strives to maintain its stellar pool of best new and established veteran live acts in the music industry. Notable names are hip-hop artist Anderson .Paak and his band, The Free Nationals, American singer-songwriter Father John Misty, and Bonobo, whom already warmed up at various music festivals this year. Oh, and say hello again to Mac DeMarco and The Internet too.

Here's the music army for Laneway Singapore 2018:

If this is not your first Laneway Singapore experience, you would've noticed the omission of homegrown and regional acts in this line-up. We have a hunch that they'll be added to this fantastic roster closer to the event day (and still keeping my hopes high for Kllo and Odesza who are performing on the Australian leg). Stay tuned for more details.

*Updated with second wave acts.

St. Jerome Laneway Singapore Festival 2018 will return on January 27 at The Meadow, Gardens By The Bay. Tickets are available from October 5 on
